president obama's sworn in on monday. >> and different thing than we saw four years ago but really, today, interesting development with this debt ceiling negotiations. you have got, mark, the republicans at their retreat coming out now saying that they want to have a temporary extension, the white house saying essentially this is that same kick the can move that we have seen from lawmakers in washington, d.c. so when you look at the numbers and how the republicans have an all-time low, the president is higher than he's been in his first term as far as approval. how do we jive that in again with this latest battle? we kind of see where the american people sides with likability and doesn't break the stalemates with house republicans. >> it doesn't but, tamron, i think today's development at the very short term is a significant break. president obama talking about breaking the quote/unquote fever of republicans and looking at what they have proposed is taking the battle away from the debt ceiling and moving it to having the senate duke it out over the budget process. of course, this means we

years ago, i will say in the air and certainly in temperatures of temperature, but certainly the obama administration that hopes maybe coming out of some of the celebration still in the air here they'll start or try to bring the country together. you mentioned that vice-president biden will be going first, in just a few moments, justice sonia sotomayor will swear him in and he and the president will be at arlington national cemetery laying a wreath at the tomb of unknown and in the blue room hine me on the aren't side because the constitution says he needs to be sworn in on january 20th and the ceremonial stuff will happen on the capitol west front tomorrow. some of the celebration started yesterday, a children's inaugural ball the first lady went to along with dr. jill biden and trying to get folks involved this and also the president and first lady participating in a day of service, they participated in a project here, service project here in washington d.c. and they had a lot of cabinet members, the vice-president and others doing that as well and when the president had a chance to

the can if you will, new year's eve, goes down the road, the pluses, it gives obama a little breathing room, especially as he tries to see what congress wants to do with the package of measures to curb gun violence. maybe this little breathing room can let him launch some work on passing immigration reform. >> let me play what house republican whip kevin mccarthy said a short time ago regarding this latest action. >> the senate has never passed a budget. it is the rule and the law that by april 15th you have to so we're saying is, we will extend the debt limit until the time line where you have a budget. a road map. so you stop digging yourself in the hole that we get out of this problem. >> keith, carry reid issued a statement saying it's reassuring to see republicans beginning to back off the threat to hold our economy hostage. if the house can pass a clean debt ceiling increase and meeting the existing obligations we will be happy to consider it. here we are as i said three days before inauguration and it looks like another fight that the republicans are not prepared to it seems to

million, and may i note that that was up from the $75.5 million he made a year earlier. so regardless of obama-care he is still making a ton of money. also let's keep in mind that the whole libertarian fiscal policy is oh let's make sure that the government leaves us alone and you can just depend on corporations and people to take care of one another. now, what do you think about that, michael hastings? i can't thing of anything that angers me more than that ridiculous naive notion. >> yeah, if the corporation is taking care of you it's a easy bargain. you pay us $40 and we'll give a checkup. if you don't want the government providing these services, and you don't want to take the responsibility, then you view the world in a free for all and i don't think it's very humane. and i think that's the shocking thing here. the fact that this guy came out and said this whole foods has a very crunchy granola brand to it and people shopping there would be shocked to learn of these views. >> ana: i want to talk to talk about people who seem to be crunchy granola but they're not. urban outfitters

of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonnell, a 6-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her artwork >> obama: i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived. and the life that lay ahead of her. and most of all, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace, this fight is worth waging. and for her this fight may even be worth losing in the short term anyway. because while the president might be able to squeak out an unsatisfying victory a small and ugly bill riddled with loopholes and signifying nothing, perhaps in this instance, the better course is to wage the big fight to stand strong over banning assault rifles. even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress because it is a noble cause. because it is better to lose with grace than to win ugly. because every day the extremists froth about saddam hussein and king obama and impeachment over a rational ban on assault rifles. they make the case to most everyday americans th

are predicting gun control will be the big divisive issue in four years. despite the uproar over last month's massacre in newtown connecticut, many are throwing any chance of new firearm restrictions out the window, saying obama's proposals will not even make it to a vote on the house floor. that will leave it largely up to the states. we've already seen new york pass the nation's tightest gun control legislation. next up could be maryland where governor martin o'malley will introduce his own proposals this week. both states are home to potential 2016 candidates and we could see this trend keep up for any democrat who wants to be taken seriously during the next presidential election. >>> and think progress is looking into some ceos who want people to retire later. they're thinking of raising the retirement age up to 70 saying social security is no longer affordable. as think progress notes that's not the case. the program can pay full benefits for decades into the future and with a couple of very small changes, it could extend the solvency for the next 75 years. we'll be right back. show, t

in the military but why did it take you two years? yeah, you have launched a clean-energy revolution and doubled a bill but they don't understand that change that doesn't pass congress doesn't make change. and obama never presented himself as a classic paio liberal. and then choose your own progressive liberals. if obama had only done xyand z everything would have been perfect. there were none of the spending cuts that the republicans insisted on, he raised taxes on the wealthy, but only on income over $400,000 instead of $250,000. but why didn't you deal with the debt ceiling now why didn't you just take us over the cliff and then surely the republicans would have folded. which has not necessarily been the case. which leads to the heighten the contradictions liberal. the radicals wanted nixon to will elected because that would heighten the contradiction. if we would have just gone over the cliff, it would have created this economic disaster, and then people would have seen how extreme and out of touch these republicans are. well, maybe. if only we would have m

. a letter to president obama published an m.i.t. technology review a week ago was just as emphatic. it says, it is quite possible that if this is not done over the next four years, it will be too late. end quote. european ngo, climate before them say climate change will zap the u.s. economy of over $400 billion annually by 2030. already they say it's stealing $1.2 trillion from the global economy each year and contributing to deaths of nearly 400,000 people. now, one hopeful sign here if you, chris, the cost of extreme disasters and catastrophes, natural or manmade, that went down last year. >> so one little piece of good news in the middle of all of that other concern. >> yes. >> it's a beautiful day here in new york. >> it is a beautiful day today. >> yeah. thank you so much, richard. >>> and that's going to wrap up this hour of "jansing and company." i'm chris jansing. thomas roberts is up next. >> good morning, everybody. topping our agenda, president obama meets the press. he's going to be holding his 37th solo news conference, the final news conference of his first term. just minutes

you fox news poll should the debt limit be raised again? of course it's been raised every year. the majority of you said only after major cuts are put in place. 69%. yes, it would be reckless not to raise the debt ceiling. >> which of course is president obama's position, 23% one there because he says this is like we have run up our credit card bill. this is like not paying your credit card bill. we have already spent that money so you have to raise the debt ceiling. some people say stop the madness. whatever the repercussions are stop it, cap it now. if we have to default we will. maybe we can skirt default somehow. seem like majority of respondents feel that way. >> 83% say spending is out of control. of that wonder i wonder how many have idea how big the debt is 16. it doesn't matter in absolute dollars this is the biggest debt that's ever existed and our credited rating has been down graded as a result of it? >> i remember as a kid i don't know elementary school or junior high when bewere talking about the debt it was something like 4 trillion. and our teachers asked us to

percentpercent 30-plus years later. it's the same with the guns. to be killed with a semiautomatic in school is rare. it's still a terrible tragedy but they take it and project it. but when obama kills people with a drone, there is no crime. >> cenk: i get that. i think the drone program is hideous, and we talk about it all the time. jon stewart made a fair point. you're talking about imaginary problems like the shark problem. >> so this is what it is. their paranoid feel of a possible distopic future prevents us from addressing our actual distopic present. we cannot discuss the gung deaths that are happening every year because a few of us must remain vigilant begins the rise of a imaginary hitler. >> cenk: you're worried about the imagethe imaginary sharks. i don't want to say it in a dismissive way but you're talking about the government taking over when they haven't and we have real deaths. isn't that a fair point alex? >> no, it's not a fair point. they've taken the guns worldwide. in chicago and new york when they took the guns crime rates went up. the issue is humans at a primitive lev
